Mary the Classic Worry Eater (Sorgenfresser)

Regular price £21.99
Add to Wishlist
We are delighted to introduce you to Mary. A genuine soft plush Worry Eater (Sorgenfresser). She has fabulously large ears, all the better for listening. She is purple and lilac striped, with aqua marine and purple ears. Her mouth is a fully functioning zip. Mary has a ring so she can be hung up (upside down, she is a little batty). Ring can be removed.
This innovative toy is brilliant for 'eating' nightmares and acting as a ‘waste bin’ for worries of all shapes and sizes. Children simply write or draw their troubles on a piece on paper and feed them into the zip mouth of the Worry Eater. Perfect in a regular bedtime routine, to help a child clear their mind and relax ahead of night time. Parents can either empty out the worries when the child is asleep (no rest for the wicked, and you had trouble remembering to help the tooth fairy in her duties!), or the friendly little monster can be a safe holding place until the child is ready to work through some of their worries.

Why they'll love it

Some worriers find the simple act of writing down what is bothering them helps, or sharing it with another person (or creature!). This toy can help children share what is on their mind, in a way they might not feel ready to with a concerned adult.

Worry Eaters can even make helpful suggestions, remind a child of their strengths or maybe even just leave them a joke (ready to be found in the morning in their mouth, in place of the worry).
